Seen the lights go out Broadway
And life went on beyond the Palisades
And left there long ago
They held a concert out in Brooklyn
They turned our power down
But we went right on with the show
I've seen the lights go out on Broadway
You know we almost didn't notice it

Like in that Spanish civil war
But no one really cared

I saw the mighty skyline fall
The union went on strike

And picked the Yankees up for free
And blew the Bronx away

That was so many years ago
Before the Mafia took over Mexico
They say a handful still survive
The way the lights went out
